This gene produces a small nucleolar RNA (snoRNA) that plays a role in post-transcriptional modification. This snoRNA is a type-3 retrotransposed snoRNA, where the ribosomal protein L10 gene on chromosome X is its parental gene, and this, together with part of the parental gene, was subsequently mobilized into an intron of the astrotactin 2 host gene on chromosome 9. This snoRNA contains a H/ACA box, which serves as a guide for the pseudouridylation of selected bases of ribosomal RNA by forming short duplexes with the 18S rRNA U1692, the target for this snoRNA. This gene is specific to human, chimp and orangutan, and is not found in the genomes of rhesus or marmoset. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2010]
